An image from Midnight in Paris

Woody Allen’s latest venture. A light-hearted, amusing tale set within the enchanting streets of beautiful Paris. With many twists and turns along the way, this story will literally take you to bygone times.

Following a young couple, Gil (Owen Wilson) and Inez (Rachel McAdams) who are soon to be married, this movie takes place in the heart of elitist modern day, tourist-driven Paris. Full of passion, dreams and imagination, Gil, an aspiring novelist is transfixed with the idea of Paris – in the 20s – in the rain. A magnificent yet charming view of the city, one in which Gil wants to immerse his entire life. However, wanting to move to an enchanting attic room in Paris is far from the high aspirations for a life in Malibu held by Inez and her parents. By the magical power of midnight Gil escapes Inez’s world as he is transported by no less than an antique car into, literally, another era.

The scenes of Paris are exquisite and only improve as the 20s glamour fills our screen. Just as Paris bewitches Gil, so too does it enchant the viewer with its quaint, spellbinding streets.

Woody Allen’s latest film is enriched with witty, humorous and historically famous characters. Prepare to share critique with Gertrude Stein, have a drink with Ernest Hemingway, laugh with Cole Porter and fall in love with Picasso's mistress, Adriana. Around every street corner awaits another story and another, more magical figure.
